Abigail has arrived!

Dear Friends and Family,

On Sunday, April 3, 2005 at 10:22 am Finnish time Abigail Joy Bogott joined our family. Ramona began feeling contractions at 3:30 am and by 9:00 am they were frequent enough to warrant a trip to the hospital. The nurse examined and determined that she was 3 cm dilated. Soon the contractions got heavy and Ramona asked for an epidural. She also noticed that she wanted to push and the nursed looked and said that there was no time and that the baby's head was already visible. Then after three good pushes Abigail Joy entered the world.

Here are the details:

Name: Abigail Joy Bogott
Weight: 4.24 kgs (9 lbs 5 oz)
Length: 52 cm (20.47 in)
Place of birth: Porvoo, Finland
Date/time of birth: April 3, 2005, 10:22 am

Baby and mother are both doing fine. Ramona and baby arrived back to our cabin this afternoon. Enjoy the pictures of our little girl.

Thank you Lord for this miracle of life! We dedicate her to you and to your service.
